I can't say it's an issue as yet because we've not began to try and will wait a few months but am wondering if anyone has been able to conceive while still demand breast feeding or did they have to get into a routine?
I'd really like an at the most 18 month age gap, obviously I'll take what I am given in the end but if I could I'd love them to be quite close in age! DD is coming up to 4 months. No sign of AF and although she sleeps through the night and has since she was 2-3 weeks but still no return of AF.
It's just a waiting it out game isn't it really?

Demand breast feeding but wanting a close age gap.

Yep, it's just a waiting game at this stage! DS was demand fed until about 9-10 months. At that age I night weaned him and dropped a morning feed. We dropped his afternoon feed at 13 months so he is now having 2-3 feeds over 24 hours.
DS started on solids just after four months and although that didn't seem to affect the number of feeds he was having, AF arrived right on cue a couple of weeks later. We decided to stop preventing a pregnancy just before Christmas and, wouldn't you know it, got my BFP.
Good luck, I hope everything works out for you.

Definitely just a waiting game!!
My DD is 9 months and I came off the mini pill just before Christmas.....no sign of AF yet. DD is still demand fed....but roughly in her own routine, no feeds overnight and about 5 feeds during the day, plus solids.....
Hoping we'll get our BFP soonish, but also aware that if it doesn't happen soonish may have to look at weaning DD.....
Good luck with you TTC journey!!

Really don't want to wean DD anytime soon and had lots of allergies as a child so looking to not start solids until 6 months. I guess it really is a waiting game!
I knew it, I think I just wanted a magical answer!
Congrats on the BFP Hamilicious!

Ive fallen pregnant a few times while breastfeeding, DD took a little longer I had my progesterone levels checked to see if I was ovulating. I was we just had our timing off. I'd suggest a trip to the GP to get it tested before looking at adjusting anything else.
